it's cool - I would like to get this going in the next couple of weeks if enough people are interested. With summer I'm not sure there will be the numbers there was in the frist few inchie swaps.

so rather than do 5 inchies to 10 people we want 7 inchie to 7 people

I'd love another swap and would love to co-organize a smaller group if it's needed.  I was trying to work up the energy and courage to organize one the way it was previously structured but just can't get there yet.

So, count me in whatever way someone needs.

A couple of weeks sounds great, that'll give my atc time ot be delivered and I can close out two of my swaps! I'm not sure there will be as many people interested either, but I'll be interested!

I really do like this way better than the previous way. ANd I notices alot of people mentions doing it this way in the last two rounds so that we could have a square nmber of inchies.

They are WAY more fun to make for someone else. I can't just sit down and make inchies unless there is a good reason Roll Eyes.

Yeah that is what I'm thinking - maybe a set of three inchies per early sender - will have to see how many people we end up with - I have some extras I've done Smiley

I hope it's OK to offer a suggestion, but could it be recommended if not required that people put their inchies between index cards or in a card or something along those lines?  The inchies that were damaged by the PO were always ones that were in an envelope without some kind of "heavier" paper surrounding them.  I suspect that the PO machines squish the envelopes as they sort and cancel and the card paper's weight was enough to "smooth over" the sharp edges of the inchies.

Hope this post makes sense and if I'm out of line, feel free to delete, tell me so, and/or ignore.

Oh, I bought new stuff just for inchies today!  I have to be in a parade first thing in the morning, but it's inchies time after that!
